Espresso Advantages

However, there is one part of the coffee that is the best for your health as is described above and that is the fresh flavor that is derived from the coffee beans. The reason that the fresh flavor is the culprit of most of the health benefits is because the freshly brewed coffee beans contain very rich antioxidants that are great for your health.

One of the reasons that espresso is even better for you than regular coffee is a result of the steam being pushed through the ground coffee beans. This occurs so quickly that much of the flavor and antioxidants are in that single cup of espresso.

On the other hand, regular black coffee drinkers may gain some of the benefits from the antioxidants, although the most beneficial cup of coffee to your health that you will ever have is the first cup! After the first cup of the regular coffee is squeezed out then the benefits of the coffee diminish because there are less antioxidants in the second, third, or fourth cups!

Even though many people may disbelieve that espresso is good for your health, many researchers have shown that drinking at least one serving of espresso a day can be beneficial to your health.

However, having an espresso is good on one hand, but doctoring it up with all sorts of sweeteners, creams, and cinnamon is something that will simply lessen the effects of the good benefits of espresso.

Cassareep Cafe on Beach

Cassareep Cafe is the perfect afternoon spot for a peaceful, lazy lunch. Grab a quick bite to eat, or a coffee, either inside the air conditioned cafe, or do what we did – step outside onto the beach front deck and sit under the trees overlooking the beach and sea. The orientation of the outside dining area belies the fact that the cafe location is in the heart of Speightstown, arguably Barbados’ third largest city. You feel as though you’re sitting on the Belmont Walkway in laid back Bequia or on a picnic at a remote stretch of beach.

A delicious and well conceived menu offers breakfast along with daily lunch specials, together with rotis, pepperpot, curries, kebabs, pasta, sandwiches and wraps. Compliment your meal with tropical smoothies and Dining on the DeckLaVazza coffee drinks. A limited wine and beer selection is available. Enjoy fresh tuna on the outdoor grill or try the delicious rotis with middle eastern spices. Both fun and affordable, Cassareep Cafe offers international and local menu items.

Plans are in the making to extend the hours of Cassareep Cafe during the “winter” season to include dinner service and sunset to moonlight drinks and liming on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
Check for hours of operation at 422-3573.

All about Black Coffee

Contains essential nutrients

When you drink black coffee, say 4 times a day, you get good doses of essential nutrients – 1 cup of black coffee has about 6% vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid), 11% vitamin B2 (riboflavin), 2% vitamin B3 (niacin) and magnesium, and 3% potassium and manganese. As you may know, these nutrients are very good for health.

Packed with antioxidants

Known to be packed with antioxidants than any vegetable and fruit could give you, it does not in any way mean you are going to live on black coffee throughout the day! The antioxidants are excellent metabolism boosters, especially when your metabolism is at a lower level.

Helps protect from liver cirrhosis

If you drink black coffee in moderation – 4 to 5 cups a day – it helps you protect liver against developing cirrhosis. Not only cirrhosis, it has protective effects on fatty liver, hepatitis and other liver-related diseases.

Burns fat!

Caffeine helps in burning fat! Yes, it is true. It is one of the major ingredients used in fat burning supplements. As you may know, caffeine boosts metabolism by about 10%; in turn, it helps in burning fat by 28 to 29% in people who are lean and by 10 to 11% in people who are obese or moving towards obesity.

This again does not mean you are going to drown yourself in it! Drink in moderation – 4 to 5 cups a day starting from early morning till 6.30 pm/7 pm. Not after 7 pm because then, caffeine would disrupt your sleep.

Northern Star Cafe

Whilst I was living in Hamilton and working in Hexham, I used to Duck off for lunch at the Italian restaurant on Beaumont St. The Northern Star Cafe is easy to find. It is next to the Northern Star hotel but has no association to the hotel. Parking can be a bit difficult. Best to park around the corner and walk up to the restaurant.The lighting inside is indirect and gives the unique Mediterranean ambiance.

The Northern Star is a Cafe-style Italian cuisine restaurant. They have ethnic style dishes, mostly originating from the Mediterranean coastline. They have a great variety of salad or vegetable-based dishes. My favorite is Caesar salad. My wife always takes the salad combination with fruit and King prawns. The fruit that comes with the salad varies, such as grapes, avocado, or pears. My favorite appetizer is Prawns cooked in Chilli with special sauces and herbs. My wife’s selection is always the Grilled Chicken Ceaser Salad. They serve fabulous Pastas. Their variations of fish and meat are excellent, including Chicken, veal and steak.

We like the restaurant’s selections for the lunch and dinner menus. However, there is one thing that this restaurant has that no other one does. It is the personalised service from Jill and the great Home made recipes from Juliano Bettoli. All the staff are polite and know the wines and the meals on the menu. The decor is genuine Italian cafe style. The feel is great for all occasion. Since the restaurant is close to the centre of Newcastle, customers can also enjoy the Meals before catching a show or movie
